A little under a year ago, at this exact spot on the creek, I lost what was probably going to be my first trophy trout (The Great White Buffalo!). After picking off small trout after small trout I had a huge one on the line and he ended up breaking my 5 lb leader because my drag was all the way tight. Obvious lesson learned, always check your drag before fishing.
I took my wife with me to fish dry creek. I made sure that the creek was open to fishing and made my way out there. I know that the last time I was there I promised you guys a picture of what the place I’m fishing looks like. I figured I would break it down for you.

A bit later I caught one more rainbow and that was it for the afternoon. I would have stayed longer but my wife wanted to leave so we compromised and we left.
Not the best day, maybe if I had stayed a bit longer I would have had a chance at some bigger ones. It was still great to fly fish for, and catch some trout! Have a month or so to come back before it closes for the season.
Total fish: 3 Rainbow Trout
